Ocean Brands was formed under the Jim Pattison Group of Companies in 2011 with the focus of bringing the best and most innovative foods to Canadian consumers from around the world.

We have two trusted Canned Seafood brands: Ocean’s and Gold Seal, and in 2013, Ocean Brands had a new area of growth. Our sights are reaching beyond the oceans, with the release of non-seafood items via our new and exciting Authentica World Cuisine Brand.
